Made In USAMelodies (with bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
A funky soul band with a bit of a clubby groove – and one that features some great male harmony vocals behind lead singer Jann Harrison! Harrison's got a very light style of singing – almost soprano at points, which makes the male voices especially welcome – as they help ground the grooves much more deeply down towards the basslines that are such a strong part of the album. The set's got a really classic De-Lite Records feel from the 70s – a groove that's right up there with the Kay-Gees at their best – with riffing guitar, bumping bass, smooth keyboards, and tight horns over the top. Titles include "Gotta Get A High", "Shake Your Body", "Try To Find A Way", "Never Gonna Let You Go", "Sexy Lady", and both vocal and instrumental versions of "Melodies". CD also features bonus 12" mixes of "Melodies" and "Shake Your Body". CD

✨✧ Orchestra USA/John LewisDebut ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first recordings ever from Orchestra USA – the landmark third stream jazz group co-led by John Lewis and Gunther Schuller! The group sprang out of Schuller and Lewis' preoccupations with bringing jazz to a more serious environment – merging traits of 20th century classical with jazz-based improvisation – in a format that included standout solo players, as well as larger backings from strings and woodwinds. And while some of that group's recordings were a bit dull, this one's totally great – not nearly as stiff and academic as you'd think – with some really strong solo work on saxes, and a soulful approach that gets past any formalism that could mar the proceedings. Players include Eric Dolphy, Phil Woods, Leo Wright, Nick Travis, and Jim Hall – and titles include "Three Little Feelings (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Milesign", "Milano", "Natural Affection", and "Donnie's Theme".

✨✧ Bruce SpringsteenBorn In The USA ... LP
Columbia, 1984. Very Good ... $6.99
The album where Bruce Springsteen really settles in as The Boss – gritty, chest-pumping anthems all the way here on this one! Born In The USA is so exuberant and full of life, even when Bruce is angry –as he is on the title track – his charisma is so strong that you'd be forgiven for thinking he's cheerleading, when he's really criticizing. Strong stuff, even if you might want to skip over couple of overplayed numbers – with "Cover Me", "Darlington County", "I'm On Fire", "I'm Going Down", "My Hometown", "Glory Days", "Born In The USA", "No Surrender", "Bobby Jean", "Dancing In The Dark", and "Working On The Highway".

Features Quinton Claunch procution – and titles that include "Old Friend", "Walking Out On You", "Take Me Just As I Am", "Love Works That Way", "The Power Of A Woman", "Soul City USA", "Once In A While", and "I Never Loved A Woman".

One of the few singles ever cut by this mixed rocking soul combo! "Living In The USA" is a cover of the excellent Steve Miller tune – done here at about the same tempo, and with a groove that's very nice. "Count On Me" is a mellower tune – but unfortunately, Wilmer's voice is better suited to faster and funkier material, and we think it just doesn't work. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousSoulsville USA – A Celebration Of Stax (3CD set) ... CD
Stax/Craft, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99 24.99
It's been almost 60 years since the Stax Records label forever changed the face of American soul music – and we can think of no better way to celebrate than by dipping into this well-chosen batch of 60 classic tracks from the label's glory days! The whole Stax groove is here – from the early roots of Memphis soul, to the label's breakout crossover moment in the 60s, to their new sense of pride and power in the post-1968 years – all wrapped up in a super-tight 3CD set, without any filler at all! The set moves in roughly chronological order – and covers both the ballads and the groovers, the funky moments and more sophisticated sounds – on titles that include "Jody's Got Your Girl & Gone" by Johnnie Taylor, "Fool In Love" by The Veltones, "Big Bird" by Eddie Floyd, "Private Number" by Judy Clay & William Bell, "I Got A Sure Thing" by Ollie & The Nightingales, "Hey You Get Off My Mountain" by The Dramatics, "Starting All Over Again" by Mel & Tim, "Hearsay" by Soul Children, "Dedicated To The One I Love" by The Temprees, "After Laughter" by Wendy Rene, "Walking The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "You Don't Miss Your Water" by William Bell, "Tramp" by Otis & Carla, "Walk On By" by Isaac Hayes, "Just Keep On Loving Me" by Johnnie Taylor & Carla Thomas, "What A Man" by Linda Lynell, and "Your Good Thing Is About To End" by Mable John.

Unique Jazz (Italy), 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most interesting sets of work we've ever seen from Dolphy – a live performance recorded in New York on October 7, 1962, and one that features him working with a host of unusual sidemen – including Herbie Hancock on piano, Ed Armour on trumpet, Richard Davis on bass, and Edgar Bateman on drums! The recording quality's got a definite "live" feel, but is still strong overall – and both Dolphy and Hancock more than make up for it with some very unusual solo work that makes the album a key part of understanding their careers at the time. Eric is on alto, flute, and bass clarinet – and titles include "2.45", "GW", "Left Alone", and "Miss Ann". LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime live work from this legendary fusion combo – a group who were to Japanese jazz what the Crusaders were to the US at the end of the 70s! The album features the group recorded live in the US – working in especially soulful territory that features lots of Fender Rhodes and clavinet from Takehiro Honda – plus great horn lines that flow, soar, and sparkle wonderfully with a perfect balance between tightness and soulful expression. This Japanese version features the full double-length album – not issued in the US – with a total of 9 tracks that include "Coke Screw", "Jay Walk", "Super Safari", "Autumn Dreams", "Racing Around", "Wind Jammer", and "Orange Sunrise".

TSOP, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most successful albums cut by People's Choice during the 70s – and a record that shows them making the same progression from funk to disco as other groups of the time, like BT Express. Yet despite the easily imagined disco that the title might indicate, the album's actually got some great soul tracks – filled with the heavy Philly soul of earlier days, stretched out a bit more professionally thanks to production help from Gamble & Huff. Frankie Brunson's great on vocals and keyboards, and the band grooves hard and tight on most of the album. Tracks include "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "Mickey D's", "Party Is A Groovy Thing", "Don't Send Me Away", and "I'm Leaving You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Benson BrooksFolk Jazz USA (plus Alabama Concerto) ... CD
Vik/Lonehill (Spain), 1956/1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 obscure albums John Benson Brooks – an overlooked 50s jazz composer who often had a penchant for higher concept recordings! The first half of the CD features Folk Jazz USA – one of Brooks' most stripped down records – done with a core group of Zoot Sims on alto, Al Cohn on baritone, Nick Travis on trumpet, Barry Gailbraith on guitar, Osie Johnson on drums, and Buddy Jones on bass. The style is kind of a chamber jazz reworking of tunes from folk sources – done in a way that hangs modernist clothes on older melodies – really dressing them up with the jazz charms of mid 50s RCA! Travis is especially strong on the set – with boldly-stated lines that preserve the melodies, while other players really take off with their solos on the saxes. Titles include "Darling Corey", "Turtle Dove", "Black Is The Color", "Randall My Son", and "Venezuela". Next up is Alabama Concerto – a record based around the solo talents of Art Farmer on trumpet and Cannonbal Adderley on alto sax! The album's based on a number of historical and mythical southern themes – and although it gets a bit hokey at times, the work of Adderley and Art Farmer on the solo sections really opens up the piece and gives it a deep sense of soul. The setting is a drummer-less small group, with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Brooks on occasional piano – and themes include "The Loop", "Trampin", "Little John Shoes", "Milord's Calling", and "Rufus Playboy".

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the core of most of these numbers – often modal elements, with especially strong basslines – or earthy percussion with strong Afrocentric inspirations, recast here in the huge wave of jazz experimentation of the 60s and 70s! Most tracks are from those key decades, but he set also features some overlooked gems from the 80s too – and a good deal of these tracks are from albums we hardly ever see anymore these days. As usual, Soul Jazz has done a stunning job with the notes and package – dovetailing with their book of the same name – and tracks include "Second Line March" by David Lee, "Flashback Of Time" by Creative Arts Ensemble, "Chang Chang Chang" by Yusef Lateef, "Utopia & Visions" by Don Cherry, "It's A Trip" by Last Poets, "Universal Spiritual Revolt" by Tyrone Washington, "In The Moog" by Harold McKinney, "Spaces & Things" by Doug Hammond, "Tzaddi Vau (part 1)" by Pheeran Ak Laff, and "Dealin" by Richard Davis.

✨✧ VariousChartbusters USA – Special Country Edition ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic entry in this great series from Ace Records – a set that looks at some of the bigger country music hits of the late 60s, but in a way that moves way past the obvious and iconic! Sure, there's some well-known tracks here, but there's also a number that broke big at the time, but fell off the radar over the years – especially some of the unusual hits by big stars, or standout numbers by artists who maybe never hit the bigtime again. The variety of styles and themes is great – and really reflects some of the politics and anxieties of the time – and overall, given the helpful notes, the whole thing is similar to the excellent Dim Lights, Thick Smoke, & Hillbilly Music series on Bear Family. Titles include "The First Thing Every Morning" by Jimmy Dean, "Flowers On The Wall" by The Statler Brothers, "Girl On The Billboard" by Del Reeves, "Singing My Song" by Tammy Wynette, "Mr Walker It's All Over" by Billie Jo Spears, "I Wanna Live" by Glen Campbell, "Skip A Rope" by Henson Cargill, "What's Made Milwaukee Famous" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Understand Your Man" by Johnny Cash, "Miller's Cave" by Bobby Bare, "Almost Persuaded" by David Houston, "Begging To You" by Marty Robbins, "Carroll County Accident" by Porter Wagoner, "Chug A Lug" by Roger Miller, "Okie From Muskogee" by Merle Haggard, and "Six White Horses" by Tommy Cash.

Monty AlexanderWith Love ... LP
MPS/PA USA, 1972. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Classic MPS session by funky pianist Monty Alexander! This one's filled with moody trio material, played by Alexander's tight little group with Senator Eugene Wright on bass and Bobby Durham on drums. Wright's basslines are nice and warm, and roll off in a groovy way with Alexander's tightly punctuated piano lines. The LP includes the tracks "Monticello", "We've Only Just Begun", "Love Story", and "Summer Of 42" – all done in nice groovy versions. The album was issued in Europe with the title We've Only Just Begun – but this is the US version, with a different title but the same cover. LP, Vinyl record album

One of the grooviest albums that Clare Fischer ever recorded – featuring his electric Latin fusion group Salsa Picante, fronted by a two-man/two-woman vocal quartet who give the album kind of a "Brasil 66 meets Singers Unlimited" kind of sound! Fisher is on Fender Rhodes, and the group features Poncho Sanchez on conga, percussion by Alex Acuna, and some great reed work by Gary Foster. Tracks include "Du Du", "Legacy", "Guajira Pa La Jeva", "Funiquado", "Melancolico", and a great version of Fischer's excellent "Morning", one of his best and most-recorded compositions!

A classic session for MPS, one of the few labels smart enough to ever make bassist Richard Davis a leader on a session! The set is arguably his best record as a leader, and it features a great group, playing in a number of different configurations. Players include Freddie Hubbard, Roland Hanna, Louis Hayes, and Jerry Dodgion – and the playing's a nice mix of modernism and soul jazz, with the kind of approach that Hubbard was using on a lot of his Atlantic records at the time.

✨✧ VariousRock & Roll Music – The Songs Of Chuck Berry ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Chuck Berry may have been a hell of a hitmaker on his own – but he also helped lots of other folks hit the heights, too – thanks to the fantastic songs he penned over the years! Berry's original versions are the stuff of early rock and roll gold – but the tunes here take off in all sorts of directions – from rockabilly to country, garage, psych, soul, and even a bit of folk as well – served up by a surprisingly large amount of artists you might not never associate with Chuck's music! The package is definitely one of the most striking in the "songwriter" series from Ace Records – and like the others, it's done with a similar sort of depth – including notes on all the many unusual records included in the collection. Titles include "Roll Over Beethoven" by Helen Dixon, "Around & Around" by Swinging Blue Jeans, "Nadine" by The Bunch, "I'm Talking About You" by The Remains, "Oh Baby Doll" by The Pretty Things, "Come On" by Ian Gomm, "Memphis" by Don Covay, "You Never Can Tell" by John Prine, "The Promised Land" by Dave Edmunds, "Beautiful Delilah" by The Count Bishops, "Back In The USA" by MC5, "You Can't Catch Me" by Sleepy LaBeef, "Sweet Little Sixteen" by The Hollies, "Almost Grown" by Syndicate Of Sound, "Too Much Monkey Business" by Elvis Presley, and "No Money Down" by John Hammond.

Afrobomb, 2004. Used ... $9.99
Afro Funk from the New York scene – served up by a combo who've taken Fela's inspiration to great new levels! The sound here definitely has roots in the grooves first grown in the 70s – heavy percussion, hard-rolling rhythms, and a brace of horns soaring over the top – tight on the head arrangements, but free to step out in jazzier moments in the longer space of the tracks! But Akoya also have a sound that's far more than just a copycat of the classic years – and they bring a sophisticated, contemporary groove to their music – one that's still mostly live and organic, but which also has a great sense of space and timing too. Vocal numbers include the political tracks "USA (Unilateral System Of Attack)" and "Star Wars" – and other titles include "Pelotera", "Mutiny", and "Akoya Chant". CD

James BrownRoots Of A Revolution ... CD
Polydor, 1960s. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
A great collection of 60s work by James – one that goes way past the hits, to show the birth of the funky style that would forever be James' calling card in the 70s! The package starts in the earlier King R&B years – with tracks that are hard and soulful, yet which also have a unique approach to rhythm that was the beginning of Brown's experiments in funk. As the set moves on, it runs through an assortment of 60s hard soul styles – with touches of soul jazz, sock-boogaloo, and more – all coming together to serve up a great portrait of James' early genius! The package has a number of wonderful vocal cuts, some instrumental bits, and even some rare studio dialogue – and it features tracks pulled from a number of rare singles and long out of print LPs, complete with a killer booklet too! Titles include "Baby You're Right", "Doodle Bee", "This Old Heart", "I'll Never Never Let You Go", "I Cried", "I Don't Care", "Shout & Shimmy", "Mashed Potatoes USA", "Maybe The Last Time", "Oh Baby Don't You Weep (parts 1 & 2)", "Just You & Me Darling", "And I Do Just What I Want", "Hold It", "Begging Begging", "That Dood It", and "Chonnie On Chon". 43 tracks in all!

Rhythmical movement is our favorite kind of movement – especially when it's done right, which it definitely is in the hands of Italian soundtrack maestro Stelvio Cipriani – who turns in some wonderful grooves for this rare sound library set! The album's got a funky vibe that matches some of Cipriani's best film score material from the late 70s from the keyboard-heavy cuts that he used in both love and comedy scores, to some of the more upbeat disco sounds he'd bring out for other films – although the album's pretty darn upbeat overall, and definitely lives up to the movement-heavy promise of the title! Most tracks are instrumental, with nice funky currents and keyboards – and titles include "What Can I Do", "Brasil Connection", "Living & Loving", "Don't Tamper With My Things", "Burglar Proof", "Percussion Gun", and "Chicago USA".

✨✧ ClashClash ... CD
Sony, 1977. Used ... $2.99
One of the most stunning debut albums of the 70s – and a set that burst on the scene with a sound that summed up a generation, but which had never been heard this clearly before! This self-titled Clash album was different from other landmarks of the time – work by the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and others – as the group had a sense of raw power, but also a tunefulness too – a way of pushing their message into territory that others wouldn't have reached – with tunes that were as surprisingly hummable as they were politically correct! There's a bit less Jamaican influence here than in later Clash years, but that quality is still present somewhat – and over the years, this is definitely a set we can return to again and again – with no sense of apology or outdated ideals at all. Nearly every cut's a classic – and titles include "Janie Jones", "Career Opportunities", "Police & Thieves", "Garageland", "Clash City Rockers", "I Fought The Law", "White Riot", "London's Burning", "White Man In Hammersmith Palais", and "I'm So Bored With The USA".

Golliwogs (Creedence Clearwater Revival)Fight Fire – The Complete Recordings 1964 to 1967 ... LP
Fantasy/Craft, New Copy ... On October 27, 2017
Fantastic freaky sounds by The Golliwogs – the group who later morphed into Creedence Clearwater Revival – but who already sound pretty great themselves! The style is close to Creedence, but nicely different too – much more garage rock overall, with the vocals of John Fogerty maybe tuned more towards a sound used by The Animals – although his guitar work also has plenty of fuzz! There's a definite influence from R&B, but maybe not as pronounced as in later years – and all the charms of CCR are clearly bubbling right there under the surface. The tracks were all recorded by Fantasy Records in the early days, and for years were considered something of a footnote to their later fame – but taken together here, they're more than strong enough to stand on their own. This new Craft presentation is the best they've ever looked, too – as the package has very detailed notes, and information on all the original recordings – with 23 titles that include "You Came Walking", "Little Tina", "Don't Tell Me No Lies", "Brown Eyed Girl", "Fight Fire", "Walking On The Water", "You Can't Be True", "She Was Mine", "Gonna Hang Around", "Call It Pretending", "Little Girl", and even an "Action USA Spot".

Chico HamiltonWith Strings Attached ... LP
Warner, 1959. Very Good- ... $7.99
One of the best records that Chico Hamilton cut during the 50s – and one that features Eric Dolphy, who was with Chico's group for a short while! The record's got the quintet (which also includes the excellent Dennis Budimir on guitar) fronting larger string arrangements by Fred Katz (no longer their cellist, but still a key force here) – and the approach is a great expansion on the earlier styles that Chico forged for Pacific Jazz. The strings here are never sleepy, and instead have a dark and modern feel overall – similar to Ralph Burns' best work of the time, but a bit more restrained – and Eric Dolphy's reed work really keeps things interesting, with sharp-edged notes give most of the tracks a fair bit of depth. Titles include "Modes", "Strange", "Don's Delight", "Andante", "Fair Weather", "Something To Live For", and "Pottsville USA". LP, Vinyl record album

Alex Harvey & His Soul BandAlex Harvey & His Soul Band (with bonus download) ... LP
Polydor/Universal (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $19.99 33.99
Fantastic early work from Alex Harvey – later a big force in British blues and rock, but here at the head of an incredibly cool combo that's drenched in soul! The tunes are short, sharp, and plenty soulful – very much inspired by R&B work of the 50s, but served up with some of the leaner soul modes that were grabbing the London mod scene during the mid 60s – often with a strong tenor getting the chance to solo on many numbers, and these raw vocals that sound like they must have been an influence on Robert Plant. The album was recorded live, with a really raw sound – and titles include "When I Grow Too Old To Rock", "Framed", "Backwater Blues", "Going Home", "Teensville USA", "I Just Wanna Make Love To You", "The Blind Man", and "I Ain't Worrying Baby".

1st & 15th, 2017. New Copy ... $7.99 11.99
The first of a proposed trilogy from Chi's Lupe Fiasco – and his first official independent album after stepping away from Atlantic! Lupe had concerns over the major label system stifling his creativity, so it should be no surprise that he's as lyrically-focused and deeply thoughtful as ever here – but what's suprising is how immediately engaging the production is, considering the move away from commericial expectations – it's accessible ear candy on a surface level, but soul baring in lyricism – win-win! Guests include Ty Dolla $ign, Bianca Sings, Rick Ross & Big KRIT, Salim and others – and titles include "Dopamin Lit", "NGL", "Promise", "Made In The USA", "It's Not Design", "Wild Child", "More Than My Heart", "Law", "Kill", "Tranquillo" and more.

Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the funkiest records ever cut under the direction of Leonard Feather – a sweetly grooving little set that's filled with tight changes and lots of soulful riffing! Feather wrote and arranged the date, but the real strength here is the players – Mainstream Records hipsters who include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Charles Kynard on organ, Paul Humphrey on drums, Freddy Robinson on guitar, and Ernie Watts on sax and flute – plus a bit of vocal work from Kitty Doswell, although the album's predominantly a vocal one. There's almost a soundtrack jazz feel to some of the best cuts here – tunes that are funky, but not in an over-the-top sort of way – with subtleties and sophistication that really keep the album fresh. The set kicks off with "Nam M'Yoho Ren'ge Yo", which has a good groove, and a nice tight break at the beginning – and other tracks include "The Night Blooming Jazmen", "Donte's Inferno", and "Funkville USA".

Big Break (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Funky Philly soul at its finest! This is the first-ever People's Choice compilation we've seen – all the more impressive for pulling together essential recordings made for the Philadelphia International, Casablanca, TSOP, West End and Phil-LA Of Soul labels – recordings that cover an incredible decade-long run! People's Choice burst out of the gate in the early 70s with a wave of funky, electric piano flavored singles – soon catching the attention of Gamble & Huff, which helped open doors both commercially and creatively in the years that followed. We'd be hard pressed to pick a finer batch of tracks from early 70s to early 80s than you'll find here – including standout early singles and album tracks, rarer B-sides and single mixes – when considered all together really showing the group in all its multi-faceted glory! 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Do It Anyway You Wanna", "I Likes To Do It", "Cold Blooded & Down-Right-Funky", "Nursery Rhymes", "My Feet Won't Move, But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Turn Me Loose", "Grunt", "Love Shop", "Asking For Trouble", "Don't Send Me Away", "A Mellow Mood", "You Ought TO Be Dancing", "If You Gonna Do It (Put Your Mind To It)" (Parts 1 & 2), "Boogie Down USA", "Soft And Tender", "A Great Truth", Tom Moulton mixes of "Opus-De-Funk" & "Do It Any Way You Wanna" and "Jam Jam Jam (All Night Long)" and more!

An obscure jazzy soundtrack by Oscar Peterson, and one of his nicest albums from the late 70s! The record moves past the usual Peterson trio format – and includes extra horn players like Benny Carter, Zoot Sims, and Clark Terry, as well as the vibes of Milt Jackson. All this makes for a nicer than usual set of original jazzy tracks, many with a strident groove that's very different than Peterson's other work from the time.

Strut (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $32.99 34.99
A whole new side of the talents of Sun Ra – especially if you only know the longer-style jams on some of his albums from the 60s and 70s! From the very start of his career, Ra was every bit as interested in issuing music on 45s as he was on albums – and in fact, at some of the more desperate times, the 7" single turned out to be a very affordable format to try out new ideas – including some great projects with other artists! The array of work presented here is stunning – as the set includes some very up-close and personal moments with Ra on record, plus some tight jazzy tracks from the Arkestra, surprising vocal group material designed to crack the R&B market, and some especially cool projects with other singers too. The package is put together with very detailed notes on all the singles – and while the bulk of this material comes from the key Arkestra years of the late 50s through the early 80s, there's also a few tracks from other dates too – including a handful of songs that were only issued as 45s in later years. Vinyl Part 1 is a 3LP set that focuses on the earliest years – with a total of 35 tracks in all – and titles include "Chicago USA" by The Nu Sounds, "I'm Coming Home" by Billie Hawkins, "Softalk" by Sun Ra, "Demon's Lullaby" by Le Sun Ra, "It's Christmas Time" by The Qualities, "M Uck M Uck (Matt Matt)" by Yochanan, "Bye Bye" by The Cosmic Rays, "October" by Sun Ra, "Adventur In Space" by Sun Ra, "Back In Your Own Backyard" by Hattie Randolph, "The Sun One" by Yochanan, "Dreaming" by The Cosmic Rays, "The Sun Man Speaks" by Yochanan, "Daddy's Gonna Tell You No Lie" by The Cosmic Rays, "Last Call For Love" by Billie Hawkins, and "Super Blonde" by Sun Ra.

SuicideSuicide ... LP
Red Star/Superior Viaduct, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken-down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a key bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s – and one that was in a space that was completely their own – and still is, after all the decades since the release of this record! With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and Tangerine Dream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. The album has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock records of all time – and titles include the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree".

Sylvie VartanSylvie Vartan En Anglais – Et En Americain ... CD
RCA/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Sylvie Vartan was one of the grooviest singers in France during the 60s – part of that great wave of female talent that also included Francoise Hardy and France Gall – and although her French recordings are very well-remembered and reissued, she also cut a number of more obscure English language tracks at the time! This collection is the first to focus on those gems – work recorded in New York, Nashville, and London – all different spots directed by RCA, where Sylvie picked up new grooves, different production, and some styles that really expanded her sound! Almost all the numbers here still have that swinging 60s French pop approach – mod at times, slinky at others – but the shift to English lyrics makes for a mighty nice change – and opens the singers charms to an even bigger audience than ever. CD features 25 tracks, detailed notes, and even includes a few unissued titles from the time – with tunes that include "Love Has Laid His Hands On Me", "Whirlpool", "Gonna Cry", "Run For The Sun", "USA", "I Heard Somebody Say", "Another Heart", "He Understands Me", "It's Not A Game", and "I Wish You Well".

George BraithMusart ... CD
Prestige/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $5.99 13.98
One of our favorite-ever albums on Prestige Records from the 60s – and a set that's a fair bit different than most of the other work on the label! The set's an unusual outing for saxophonist George Braith – cut after his famous albums for Blue Note, and in a mode that's quite different – very far-reaching, and almost spiritual at points – with the blend of jazz and other modes that you might find on the Cadet/Concept sessions in late 60s Chicago! Braith plays a wide assortment of saxes – c-melody, alto and soprano – but his playing here is a bit different than the Roland Kirk-like vibe of before – sometimes more stretched-out and exploratory, in a Nathan Davis sort of vibe – sometimes wrapped up in some larger explorations from the whole group. There's moments of raw percussion with echoey production, others with wordless vocals floating alongside the lead soloist, and still others that have that catchy blend of soul jazz and exoticism you'd find in the music of Eddie Harris or Yusef Lateef – even though Braith here is completely his own artist too! The set features Jane Getz on piano, Jay Carter and Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Ben Dixon on drums – but there's also a lot of percussion, both Latin and otherwise, from a shifting lineup of players. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Del's Theme", "Musart", "Evelyn Anita", "Our Blessing", "Laura", and "Splashes Of Love". CD

Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
An early 70s classic from The Crusaders – and a record that has the group perfectly poised between the rougher soul jazz of their roots and some of the tighter styles they brought into play during the 70s! The sound here is heavily electric – thanks to great keyboards from Joe Sample and bass from Wilton Felder – but the style isn't nearly as slick as on later albums recorded under the Crusaders name, thanks to the hipper, looser feel the group were allowed while working for the Chisa label! As on the first album recorded after the group shifted their name from the Jazz Crusaders, the set features added guitar work by Larry Carlton, David T Walker, and Arthur Adams – all of whom really help to emphasize the funkier side of the tracks while Wayne Henderson's trombone and Wilton Felder's tenor remind us they've still got a great talent for jazz! Titles include "Search For Soul", "Gotta Get It On", "Look Beyond That Hill", "Ain't Gon Change A Thing", and "A Message From The Inner City". LP, Vinyl record album

Crusaders5 Original Albums (Chain Reaction/Those Southern Knights/Free As The Wind/Images/Street Life) (5CD set) ... CD
ABC/Verve (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 5CD ... $19.99
A document of an incredible shift in style for the Crusaders – and one that helped them soar even higher in the jazz funk stratosphere! By the time of these albums, the group had changed significantly from their youthful days as the Jazz Crusaders – mostly a trio, with Joe Sample on keyboards, Wilton Felder on saxes, and Stix Hooper on drums – but often augmented by some of the best studio help they could find, and working at a level that was still razor-sharp, and incredibly soulful! So many other artists mixed jazz and soul together in the 70s, but a rare few could do it this right – and still hold onto all the bite that the artists had in their earlier days. Production is tight, but never too slick – no 80s smooth jazz modes here – and there's a sense of groove balanced with a sense of soloing that's really wonderful! All five albums are impeccable – to jazz what Steely Dan was to mainstream rock at the time (and we mean that in the best way possible!) – and as you'll hear with some slight inclusion of vocals (most famously by Randy Crawford on Street Life), these guys also found a way to win whole new audiences to jazz from the world of soul too. A great package – with all five albums in little tiny LP-styled covers! CD

On this one, the Crusaders definitely crossed from jazz into funk – but who cares, because the album's so darn great! The record's got a tight LA groove, with some excellent electric keyboards, sweet sax solos, and tight drumming throughout. True proof that sometimes a lot of money can be put to good use to improve a band's sound in the studio – and with the tracks to back it up, like "Creole", "Chain Reaction", "Rainbow Visions", "Hallucinate", and "Soul Caravan".

Chisa/Blue Thumb, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Sweet funky Crusaders – one of the first records the group made after dropping the "Jazz" from their name, and a soulful electric set through and through! The group still have that tightly-crafted soul jazz sound that made their late 60s recordings so great – but they're also stretching out here in more of a 70s electric funk mode – letting the keyboards of Joe Sample really set the tone for most of the numbers, as Wilton Felder's basslines weave with the drums of Stix Hooper to create a set of really great tracks. The double-length album is overflowing with great numbers – and in addition to the contributions of the core quartet, the album also features guitar from Larry Carlton, David T Walker, and Arthur Adams – plus a bit of extra bass from Chuck Rainey! The hip sound is a bit like some of Hugh Masekela's best jazz-based work for Chisa – and titles include "Full Moon", "Sweet Revival", "Mud Hole", "It's Just Gotta Be That Way", "Three Children", "Mosadi", and "So Far Away".

A really mixed bag of grooves from the Crusaders – but still an album that's quite tasty if you dig their work on the Chisa label! The record appears to be a greatest hits collection – with the "best" in the title – but it's more a summation of the styles they'd been digging on previous records, as some tracks feature a tight funky groove, others have a mellower electric one, and still others have a straight jazz approach. Highlights include the African-sounding "Time Has No Ending", the Sly Stone cover "Thank You Falletin Me Be Mice Elf Agin", and a nice reading of Wilton Felder's "Way Back Home".

Hard to miss with The Crusaders at this point – and the album's one of their stone classics from the 70s – just the kind of soulful fusion that few other groups could touch! The core trio of Joe Sample's keyboards, Wilton Felder's saxes, and Stix Hooper's drums is augmented by the guitar of Billy Rogers and bass of Robert Popwell – both players who slide in warmly to the grooves, yet still help the combo keep that lean, funky sound they first forged after dropping the first word from their Jazz Crusaders name. Things are never slick at all, and the use of vocals and larger instrumentation is yet to come – leaving the album a tight, right, outta sight groover all the way through!

The record's got razor-sharp production, which you'll hear perfectly in the album's jazz stepping hit "Keep That Same Old Feeling", one of the best tunes ever to come from the pen of Wayne Henderson, and a track that he recorded endlessly with other groups.

There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, and some of the trippier psych revival sounds of the following decade! These guys might have been right at home on Bam Caruso or early Creation Records – and share a similar love of the weirder, offbeat qualities of the late 60s – blending fuzzy performance with equally freaky production – using light touches of funk or analogue electronics along the way. Tracks on the record work together to create a very vivid audio scene – one that's echoed by the equally trippy liner notes by Alan Moore – and titles include "Harps Ascend", "Cosmic Flux History", "Tone Garden", "Pristina Strawberry Girl", "Redherringbone", "A Rasher Of Wind", "Gardense", and "The Third Programme".
